Are You Prepared For The Ideas Of The Next Decade? Find Out With FODI’s Program Today

The Festival Of Dangerous Ideas promised provocation and contemplation.

Has Its 2020 program delivered?

Of course it has.

Only a quick glance through the program unearths some of the most difficult discussions being had today, or that need to be had, this side of the decade. But dig deeper, as you’re urged to do on the website, and a whole range of extra-juicy dilemmas come to the surface. (Featured image: courtesy of FODI)

At Unforgiveableattendees will witness five of Australia’s most-compelling young leaders reason and argue for their future, but are first challenged to put their money where their mouth is and name the price of their ticket, essentially placing a financial worth on Australia’s youth.

Give It Away Nowwhere the audience is asked to come together and unanimously vote as one to donate money to charity, mimics the dire need of Earth’s inhabitants to come to a consensus and agree on the best approach to combat global warming and avoid The Uninhabitable Earth scenario.

Don’t know where to begin?

Easy, use The Hunt or Quarantine feature on the website to narrow your choices and open up a world of ideas to debate, discuss and deliberate over.

The venue for this year’s FODI will be the Sydney Town Hall, making the most dangerous of ideas easily accessible.
